We left last week, moving out while the floors were sanded and finished (with the finish used by restaurants, so this stuff better hold up to my kids), and we moved back in last night.
It looks awesome and we're really happy with it. I tried to take it all in because this floor will never be this clean again.
This is the first day of the end. Everyone says the flooring is the last thing, when really it's the last BIG thing. There are about two million small things that need to be done, and right now, my push is to make sure this ends before March 1. The current schedule has it ending at Feb. 27, and one day is not much of a buffer.
We just want this finished. Now.
The good news is that every day something is happening that gets us closer to finished. I have no idea what happens when because, like usual, I'm normally told x,y, and z are happening today! Only to return home to find w, t, and f were finished, while x,y, and z stayed dormant. But, fingers crossed, knock on wood, by the end of the week, we should have a functioning kitchen and televisions.
